I live in Philly (not Flyers fan) and up until that moment JR was one of the more beloved former players in Philly... Not anymore

Yeah, I caught that, never underestimate the power of live TV.

JR may have been a Red Wing hater, but he has never been shy about letting you know what he is thinking or feeling, and it is understandable that he would get emotional, the closest he ever came to winning the Cup came when he was a Blackhawk, and to watch his former team hoisting the Cup in person must have been a bittersweet moment for him, like most recently retired players, he probably feels like he could still be playing and would probably have come back another year for free if he could have been guaranteed another shot at the Cup.

I was dumbfounded when he started to cry.

Nice human moment, even if he is a huge ******.

JR may have been a Red Wing hater


Remember how close he was to signing with the Wings in 01? He would have won his cup.

That was a nice moment. Gotta feel for the players who never get a chance to lift Lord Stanley.

Yes, I do. That is probably the number 1 reason he hated on the Wings so much, kicking himself for what could have been.

Revisionist history is always fun. If he did sign in 01, do we win the cup in 02? Who knows, regardless he made his bed and he'll have to sleep in it. I never hated the guy, found him kind of intresting, but he tied his horse to a team that never seemed to understand no goalie, no cup.

As much as he hated on the Wings, I always did like him. One of the few guys out there who would say what he actually wanted to say as opposed to being politically correct for every interview. A lot like Chelios.

He was such a loudmouth prick, that I'm glad in a way that he never won the Cup.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

I really hope he isn't known as a crybaby now. I feel for the guy. I'd probably feel the same as him if I was in the same situation. Plus, he first came into the NHL with the Blackhawks. Give the guy a break.

And until this year, that was unwise of him.

Wow. Am I really the only one that was disgusted by this? The guy openly routed against Chicago in the Conference and Cup finals...

My link

He said recently on a Philadelphia radio station that if forced, he'd root for the Flyers.
"I said if you had a gun to my head, I said I did have to [root for the Flyers]," Roenick said on "The Waddle & Silvy Show" on ESPN 1000. "I didn't want to leave in 1996. If I have to choose, then I have to choose, that's just what it is."


Roenick said he'd also root for the Sharks against the Hawks.
"If you put a gun to my head, I got to go with the Sharks," Roenick said. "[Sharks GM] Doug Wilson gave me the most unbelievable opportunity at the end of my career, to revitalize and finish on a high note.


And then he is all teary eyed saying, "It's the Hawks man."

To me this was just classic JR making the Hawks great moment all about him. There are tons of great NHL players to never win a cup. I'm sure Mike Gartner & Pat LaFontaine are not feeling sorry for him. And then Milbury consoling him just made it worse. Yet another reason why I hate nbc's coverage. Wish I could have been watching CBC.

Call me a heartless hater all you want, but this made me sick.

Wouldn't surprise me either. It's pretty common among NHL players. People just don't talk about it.
